Driven by a quality tube amplifier, with a good subwoofer as some prefer , will deliver some of the most engaging music that covers the entire spectrum. As of today, 22 June 2000 , some seven weeks, I thoroughly love my Rogers. It seems that Rogers made several very similar speakers all using the same size cabinet, but with significant revisions to drivers and crossovers. I looked at the show card again. My greatest surprise perhaps is when I tried them with the newer Linn gear. £499-per-pair small two-ways are plentiful, generally of decent performance if of serious manufacture and saleable in huge numbers without any deception as regards heritage. It is virtually unknown for a speaker to be still available, virtually unchanged, 14 years after that date.
I think many of us would be greatly discouraged to buy defunct or discountinued loudspeakers made five years ago, more so, from a manufacturer who are no longer in operation. At the 9 o'clock to 10:30 position, I can already hear the 'meat' of the music, without further need to crank up the volume. To back track a little. £499-per-pair small two-ways are plentiful, generally of decent performance if of serious manufacture and saleable in huge numbers without any deception as regards heritage. For all other locations including Hawaii, Puerto Rico and Alaska, please request a quote prior to purchase. Yank it into the 21st Century and make a mint at it? Cello became too gruff, and male speaking voice a little chesty.
This probably explains why this speaker was such a huge hit with the same people who wanted to own Quad 57s. Stereo images were spacious, focused and full of the intended recorded-acoustic detail. In the right set-up, incredibly satisfying! But I can't help you with your last request, sorry! Like all good speakers it simply sounded pretty in the top end without bringing attention to itself. The outcome was then licensed to commercial speaker companies for production. This amount includes applicable customs duties, taxes, brokerage and other fees. Russell Thanks for taking the time to leave your comments Russell. The specs say they only go down to 70Hz, but listening to music I seldom notice this, unless I played them very loud.
Some might see 'creative badging' as cute or canny; I don't. I have to admit that these little jewels grow on you the longer you listen to them. That coming from these little speakers is a hard feat to pull off. The treble is excellent, never sounding harsh, overly prominent or irritating, instead it was very well controlled, 'solid' and smooth. Again, as a guide, the main punch of a bass drum usually occurs at around 80Hz. The item may have some signs of cosmetic wear, but is fully operational and functions as intended.
A cable of speakers manufactured especially by me even for the speakers, a mixture of silver of Siltech + copper , and the cables of Cinh, preferably, mark Sitech 88. I can really say these are one the most satisfying speakers i have owned. Hand on heart: I wanted to dislike these from the moment I saw them. This is first-ever hi-fi setup. These speakers allow you to listen to the music with ease, i found i was constantly analysing the sound of most other speakers and not listening to the music. After double that, they were even more fluid and better able to handle hot transients.
In 1975 Michael O'Brien as chairman and Brian Pook as M. I set the speakers up on stands a few inches from the wall as recommended by the handbook, but those wanting a little more bass can always put the speakers closer to the wall to capitalise on the boundary effect. Is it so surprising, then, that the design has proved to be a stayer, outliving many would-be rivals? I am lucky to have had several Rogers speakers but these are my favourite, the 3-way Studio 1. Although Wo Kee Hong owns the rights to the name, it had retained Swisstone as the sole researcher and designers of the Rogers speakers, therefore preserving the brand's British origins for a while. Midrange clarity is exceptional, and highs can be crystal clear without harshness in a proper set-up. Tubes amps are a must. The next question is, should I keep them in my current surround system? Does anyone have any experience with them? Not the most subtle speaker, but they go loud and have really awesome bass.
So what is the Rogers up to with this wannabe? Please see photos for model info and overall condition. The full history can be found on this site, which mentions both the models in your pic. . When used with poorly chosen associated electronis, especially on cd playback, the sound can be unforgivingly harsh. As with many Rogers speakers of this time, they changed at least once in production. Yank it into the 21st Century and make a mint at it? They have a snap about them that is not often heard in speakers of this size or price range. The damped paper diaphragm is supported in a roll rubber surround and the crossover, which operates at 3kHz, is fixed directly to the driver terminals, ostensibly to minimise internal wiring.
Although these little speakers will likely fill fewer of those moments for me that I aspire to hear, they do have certain moments that really take me there. Strengths: Superb midrange, speed and transparency if a natural and balance presentation. By this I mean there are moments in music where the speakers convey sounds to you in a way that really make you go, wow and you turn your head, so to speak. But that Rogers badge and the truncated name certainly call to mind a deceased classic, and not subliminally. Then I noticed the driver complement, the rear port, the flush baffle, the conventional grille material, the minuscule increase in dimensions. It's a sort-of Tannoy thang going on here.
Only a number of horn speakers from Tannoy and Klipsch have been around as long. I bought a Unison Simply 4 for amplification. There are not many speakers that were designed as monitors that can be used in a normal listening enviroment without causing serious listening fatigue. The other part of this first question is easy; there is nothing mediocre about the sound of these tiny boxes. I used to love these speakers in the 80's and demo'd them a few times, so I bought a near mint pair off ebay for £180 about three years ago as I was really keen to see if they were as good as I remember. Over the years i have heard many many speakers, likes of Tannoy, Ruark, Dynaudio, Sonus faber, Spendor etc. If you like a panoramic soundstage but aren't a fetishist about depth, fire them straight ahead.
Mine came from a dealer selling on the pair for a customer, and were practically as new. It had its work cut out for it, even without the baggage imposed on it by a cynical marketing hack. At that time in my Hi-Fi journey, they would certainly have been on the end of something big and solid state, though I cant for the life of me remember what it was. When you play the speakers too loud they compress the sound and the bass will get a bit thick. Voices is really sweet, strong, never feeble, articulate and full bodied like a real singer performing right in front of me.
